    • Abstract

       

      Psychrophiles are organisms living in extremely cold conditions within the temperature range of - 20 deg C to

      + 10 deg C. These organisms survive in harsh environment by modulating their genetic make-up to thrive inextremely cold conditions. These cold-adaptations are closely associated with changes in the life forms, geneexpression, and proteins, enzymes, lipids, etc. This review gives a brief description of the life and geneticadaptations of psychrophiles for their survival in extreme conditions as well as the bioactive compounds thatare potential antimicrobials.
